All good points Kremer.
FWIW, I have two DACs - the EE MiniMax and Jan's StageDAC - that cost more and I suppose might arguably be considered 'higher end'.
Yet I preordered the bifrost anyway, because (a) what a good price and (b) I like the Lyr, let's see what their DAC can do.
Anyway, I'm not sure my order (#101) is still in the works - the cc I use with Paypal expired two months ago. Although I updated it Paypal's message indicates the order's lapsed and I need to contact Schiit. Not a high priority ATM...
I used to own the Eastern Electric minimax - it was a great dac, and went for around $800 when i bought it. I'll be very curious to see what happens if you compare it to the bifrost.
If the bifrost performed at that level.. wow. though dont know if it could be expected to or not.
